Please pray for these people

It’s a brutal wildfire season in the southwest.

Above: This is just ONE of the many, many fires. I got the pics forwarded to me in an email, so thought I would highlight just this one fire to help make the problem more personal and pray-able. I mean … all that smoke so close to this Sierra Vista neighborhood and an Army base where hundreds of families live. It puts it into perspective, KWIM?

Below is the most current map of how big the problem is … and it doesn’t show all of Texas.

Obama denied Texas FEMA aid with all these fires. Nice guy, isn’t he? So caring about the welfare of others that he’s spending hundreds of millions to fight an illegal “humanitarian” war in Libya, but doesn’t lift a finger for our own people who are fighting for their homes and lives right here?

Oh wait. These are Christian, Republican states. My bad. He only cares about Muslims and Democrats.

  1. I’m afraid you’re right, Chrissy — Christians, Republicans, bitter clingers, folks living on an Army base… why should Zippy care about them? (Hmmm… wonder if there are any mosques threatened by the wildfires?)

      You got me curious, so I googled. It’s all Catholic and Protestant. I got a very SAD hit here:

      “The Our Lady of the Sierras Shrine has been a popular tourist/religious attraction for over two decades and was opened to the public in 1998. Residents of Sierra Vista, Hereford and Palominas could see the 75 foot Celtic cross gracing the chapel grounds for miles and at night, it lent a comforting glow to weary travelers; standing next to the cross, a 30 foot Madonna figure. The shrine, which receives approximately 3,500 visitors and religious pilgrims each month. While the buildings on the grounds were burned by the fire, the cross and the Madonna figure still stand, almost as a testament to the faith, courage and resiliance of a community that has banded together in the face of tragedy.”

    One of my peeps sent me this site. It’s got the best info I’ve seen for tracking natural disasters and much better maps than I found yesterday when I was doing the graphics above.
